For the sequel, on May 5 at the F1 Pit Building, Star Wars enthusiasts can choose from three race categories, according to latest information released on the event’s website.

The winner of the male and female categories for the 10km Star Wars Run will each take home S$1,000 in cash along with a trophy. Those who place second and third receive S$600 and S$300 respectively. 

Participants will also receive a run pack comprising an event t-shirt, tote bag, picnic mat, medal and finisher’s t-shirt or plush bag clip, all themed in line with the Dark or Light side.

The event debuted last year to much fanfare with it taking place at the end of a three-day celebration marking Star Wars day, also known as May the 4th.  

The festivities marked the start of a three-year collaboration between the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) and Walt Disney Company Southeast Asia for Singapore to host entertainment activities themed around Disney’s biggest brands.
